West Campus Foundation for Excellence
August 23, 2023

Overview

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! As your school’s parent-teacher organization, we work hard to raise funds to support enrichment activities at West Campus. Our students benefit in many ways from a small, close-knit community; however, the school also struggles with a tight budget due to our small size.

WCFE aims to support the district in making West Campus a highly competitive, award-winning school. Your donations and our March gala fundraiser are two ways our organization supports the West Campus students, including Yearbook, Band, Drama, athletics, college tour, classroom texts, and scholarships. WCFE also contributes to community-building activities like the Unity Festival, staff appreciation lunch, and senior breakfast. To learn more, please visit our website.

You can keep in touch with the West Campus Foundation for Excellence by signing up for their newsletter here.

WCFE next meeting 3/13: Please join us on Monday, 3/13, for our next general membership meeting to see how we utilize our funds and to give us feedback. We did a survey early in the year that we have tracked and are working towards, on what people wanted us to focus on. We are now looking to convert this as well as new requests into a list of concrete projects, including both scope and cost and we will need your input. Join us at our meeting to discuss how we fund requests from teachers, administration, clubs, teams, and students.
